Socrates Project


A maiden 23 RC hole drilling program was carried out at Socrates in early 2018 which returned multiple significant intercepts with 19 holes returning intercepts of >0.5g/t Au.  Previous geochemical surveys carried out over Socrates has defined a strike length of approximately 300mt, of which 120mt was tested during maiden drilling.

Significant intercepts included:

  • 5m @ 5.95g/t Au from 12m
    • Including 2m @ 11.63g/t Au from 13m
  • 8m @ 2.85g/t Au from 14m
    • Including 2m @ 8.35g/t Au from 15m
  • 2m @ 4.42g/t Au from 28m
  • 3m @ 8.13g/t Au from 40m
    • Including 1m @ 15.2g/t Au from 41m
  • 9m @ 2.28g/t Au from surface
  • 15m @ 2.67g/t Au from 31m
    • Including 4m @ 4.7g/t Au from 38m
  • 14m @ 6.96g/t Au from 20m
    • Including 2m @ 14.7g/t Au from 24m and 2m @ 23.5g/t Au from 27m
  • 2m @ 16.72g/t Au from 48m


Additional Geophysics will be conducted prior to the commencement of further drilling to better understanding of the structural controls of the mineralisation and a number of notable targets remain untested.
